Elegant 19th-century villa in the Florentine hills, with an outdoor pool overlooking the Tuscan capital
High up in the Florentine hills, surrounded by centuries-old cypress trees, Hotel Villa Fiesole is a leafy hideaway that peers over the Tuscan capital. The ground floor reception area and sala camino (fireplace room) set the tone: warm, refined and elegant. Soft, creamy walls, comfy chocolate-colored leather and suede furniture, stylish cowhide rugs, and a speckled marble fireplace topped with anglepoise lamps and bell jars decorate the public spaces. Walls are adorned with mirrors and simple artwork.
Bed and Bath
The hotel is split into two parts: a former 19th-century residence and its adjoining greenhouse. The 10 rooms in the greenhouse are all Deluxe and offer exceptional views. The decor is light, modern and airy, with pale wood flooring, stark white bedding and sleek glass and chrome furnishings. Rooms in the original villa vary considerably; some are traditionally Tuscan, with bold ceiling frescoes and marble flooring, and others are decidedly more modern, with monochromatic color schemes. Bathrooms are simple but spacious; book a Deluxe Room to guarantee a separate bathtub (some Classic Rooms have only a shower).
The heated outdoor pool is set in the leafy grounds and overlooks Florence's historic skyline. For even better views, head up to the Panoramic Terrace, where coffee-colored wicker chairs, simple glass tables and romantic candle lanterns create the perfect ambience for a pre-dinner glass of prosecco. With unfussy shabby-chic decor, Ristorante Villa Fiesole serves tasty Florentine specialties and scrumptious desserts. The torta del giorno (cake of the day) is a particular highlight.
In the Area
Dubbed the Beverly Hills of Florence, Fiesole is an upscale hilly haven a 20-minute drive from Florence. Explore the 15th-century Villa Medici, one of the best-preserved Renaissance residences, and spend time strolling through the area's many magical gardens. Dine on fine Tuscan food at Terrazza 45 and Ristorante La Reggia degli Etruschi. Last but certainly not least, Florence, with its endless profusion of architectural gems, artistic treasures and world class galleries, is within easy reach; ask the front desk to prepare a personalized itinerary.
